Candle of Compassion



Hospice White River is appealing to members of the community to pledge R50 per month to Hospice, on an ongoing basis.  This will help to ‘keep the Hospice candle burning’.

For some years we have received funding from the National Lottery but this is no longer forthcoming and we now need to proactively seek alternative funding.  The current economic climate is placing stressful demands on all non profit organisations and we are no exception.

Through the Candle of Compassion campaign, our intention is to encourage 500 people to donate just R50 per month (or an amount that is personally affordable).  In achieving this goal of 500 donors of R50 per month we will be well on the way to covering half of our monthly expenses and this will enable us to continue doing our valuable work in the community.  As of mid 2015 we have over 85 pledges per month and we are immensely grateful to every one of these donors!


Casterbridge Cinema is participating in our Candle of Compassion campaign by donating one free movie ticket for every new pledge that we receive.

To make a R50 pledge we invite donors to set up a recurring monthly payment to Hospice.  Alternatively we suggest an annual donation of R600.

Our banking details are:

Hospice White River

FNB White River

Branch Code   270 552,

Account number   6202 566 8304

We do ask that all donors inform us of their donation for 3 reasons: firstly so that we can send them their free movie ticket voucher, secondly so we can thank them, and thirdly so that we can post them a tax receipt.
